Estate Planning Seminar

Don't Leave Your Family at Risk!

Free educational event, covering:

1. Why you need an estate plan, even if you aren't rich. (And, how it may be even more important for families of modest means)

2. The 3 things your estate plan must include to keep your money out of the hands of the government (and almost certainly doesn't right now, even if you've worked with a lawyer)

3. How often your will or trust need to be reviewed and updated to make sure they work and don't end up a pile of expensive paper in your drawer.

4. What estate planning should cost and who pays the cost of a "too cheap" plan.

Two dates to choose from. RSVP by clicking the date you wish to attend:

A Free Car with Every Estate Plan?...Keep Reading

My name is Heather Pietroforte, your neighborhood Family Business Lawyer and I’m going to SHOCK YOU, then give you a gift more powerful than a blarney stone or four leaf clover.

Did you know that unless your estate plan is set up properly and kept up to date it could cost your family as much as it costs to buy a new car?

Probate Can Be Brutally Expensive And Time Consuming

Probate is the state court process that legally transfers your assets to your beneficiaries after your death. Like any court process, probate is expensive, time-consuming, inconvenient and completely open to the public.

The cost of probate includes attorney’s fees,executor’s fees, court filing fees, bond fees, and appraisal fees.

On a relatively small estate that has a value of only $250,000, you could be looking at almost $12,500 in JUST probate expenses - That’s enough to buy a whole car!

If you think your estate isn’t that big, have you considered the value of your house, even in today’s market merely probating your house will cost your family a pretty penny.

Paying Estate Taxes Is Completely Voluntary

You know that the government likes to dip it’s fingers into your pot of gold now but when you’re gone...they want to take handfuls of gold from your children and spouse.

Your Children Could Be Taken Into the Arms of Strangers…Even If You Have Named Guardians and Have Will!

To make sure your kids are not taken into the arms of strangers, even for a minute, and your money is immediately and readily available, you MUST set up a Comprehensive Kids Protection Plan®.

That is totally fine. It is normal to ​feel a little uneasy about estate planning and business planning.

Many of our happiest clients started just where you are right now. But when they read the best selling book on estate planning for families, Wear Clean Underwear (I know, it's a funny name, right?), they felt more at ease, educated and informed about this important planning than they ever had before.

And they love the peace of mind that comes with knowing everything is set up the right way for themselves, their future, their loved ones, and their business.

It's called "Wear Clean Underwear" because your mom always told you to wear clean underwear in case you were in an accident. But once you are a parent, there are important legal planning steps you need to take as well. By the way, the book gets 4.4 stars on Amazon.
